I’m going to take this directly from my free 60 page eBook on the Basics of Phasing, which you can download from here.
Another way to have a non-physical experience is becoming aware during a non-physical dream awareness experience (aka, a normal dream). Some people call these DEILD’s (Dream Exit Initiated Lucid Dream) There are certain things you can do to increase your likely hood of becoming aware during an experience. The following are ideas you can use to make such occur.
1. Practice Reality Checks throughout your day
2. Keep a Dream Journal
3. Repeat Affirmations while falling asleep at night
4. Practice Mindfulness
5. Have the proper Intent
The first way to try to increase the number of Lucid Awareness experiences you have is to practice doing Reality Checks throughout your day. What this means is that as you’re going about your physical life, stop for a second every so often and check to see if you’re actually awake. If you’re awake in the physical, the check should be obvious. Likewise, if you do a reality check while you’re non-physical, it should also be obvious. I tend to use the same questions as in the above section:
1. “Where am I?”
2. “Where am I going?”
3. “How did I get here?” and
4. “What am I doing?”
You can ask yourself these questions in 10 seconds or less. Then, when you get the result you either continue going about your physical life or fly off into the sunset in the non-physical to have some amazing adventure. It’s important that the timing of your reality checks happen when you’re doing something that you usually do while you dream. For example, you might do a check when you hear a beep on your watch. Or perhaps when you look at your hands, or maybe when you go to the bathroom. Timing is everything with reality checks. You’ll need to do them for at least a couple weeks before they’ll carry over into your non-physical
time. Just keep them up and be persistent, they do work!
The next thing you can do is to keep a dream journal. This is probably one of the best things you can do as the benefits are twofold. It helps you to remember your non-physical experiences by programming your subconscious mind into remembering as much of them as it can. Also, we tend to dream the same stuff over and over. The more dream experiences you can actively remember because of your journal, the greater the chance that you’ll notice one of those experiences happening while you’re in the non-physical. If you can recognize certain dream elements that you tend to dream about a lot, you can use that knowledge to trigger a lucid awareness within your consciousness. For example, say you dream a lot about walking down a side street in a city. This is a dream element that appears in your dream journal quite a lot, then one night you have a dream that you’re walking down a side street in a city. As you’re having this experience, you might stop for a second and remember your dream journal entry regarding it. This might trigger your lucid or astral awareness.
Another way of having more lucid awareness experiences is to program yourself while you’re falling asleep at night by repeating an affirmation. The affirmation should always be kept in the present tense and should allude to you recognizing that you’re dreaming. Something like, “I am recognizing I am dreaming”. Try not to use future tense such as, “I will recognize I am dreaming”, because your mind will always look at that as being “in the future” and will never apply it to your present self. That’s just how the subconscious mind works. Try coming up with your own affirmations and see which works best for you.
Next method to increase your lucid awareness experiences is to practice always being mindful. Always be fully aware of what you’re doing and when you’re doing it. That level of awareness will travel over into the non-physical with you if you do it enough while awake. It will become part of who you are and you’ll naturally realize that you’re in the nonphysical.
The last thing is your Intention. Command your subconscious on a constant basis by saturating it with Lucid Dreaming and Astral Projection content. Read as much as you can on the subject. Read books, websites, forums, talk about it with other people. Just keep your mind completely on the subject to the point where your subconscious mind can’t ignore it.
I practiced the reality check for 15 days and it did give me a really good break through and I even did a reality check in one of my dream. So it really works.
Keeping the dream journal, well I have become lazy after 25 days of dream writing but I do remember what dream I had last night even if I don’t write it down.
For the starters, please do keep multiple reality check because in one of my dream, my reality check failed me. So then I started multiple reality check like :
1. Am I dreaming? >>> Look at my hands and the lines on it.
2. See if my hand can go through any object.
3. Wish for something 🙂 . I would say “If I am dreaming, I want ice cream right now.”
One of the quicker reality checks within a dream awareness experience is to simply just focus upon your hands. “Usually” they’ll begin to melt, if you see that it’s a good indicator you’re not in the physical reality. 🙂
Yeah it is. In one of my dreams (when I has just started with all this) I had a dream where I was running and I decide to do a reality check.
I saw the lines of my hand and then re-looked at them to see if the lines were still the same. And they were 🙁
So I got carried away thinking it was real.
Btw it feels really nice to talk to someone with so much knowledge on the subject 🙂
Well, I’m definitely no expert. 🙂
Just a fellow consciousness explorer.
I’m just glad that some of my stuff is helping people learn to explore themselves.
Very insightful! I’ve been experimenting with the ideas of Lucid Dreaming and Astral Projection for quite some time now. The information you’ve been providing here has been truly outstanding. I’m sincerely thanking you for taking the time to put this up for your “fellow consciousness explorers” 🙂
